At a Glance

Explore music that represents American history and learn how expressive lyrics can provide insight into both past and current events. From Nina Simone to Bruce Springsteen to Kendrick Lamar, this lecture is a study on the history of racial injustice, social consciousness and the spirit of liberation struggles as expressed through music. As African Americans continue to advocate for those who are still marginalized and oppressed, ethnomusicologist Dr. Stephanie Shonekan, will take you on a musical journey from slavery, through the Civil Rights Movement, into current times. She’ll shed light on music’s response to racial injustice and the chilling relevancy of how music from the past relates to the tragic events of today. How can we advocate for an America that lives up to its ideals? Join Dr. Shonekan on a search for peace and dignity, hope and optimism through music.
